Love and Friendship (Paperback)Alison Lurie (author)
- Not available
'Emmy Turner's marriage to a hard-working and dullish lecturer at Convert College suffers from various tensions. She is rich, he is poor, she can afford to be detached from Convers and its values, he can't and doesn't particularly wish he could. Emmy has a highly sensual affair with a non-creating musician-in-residence, and her husband suspects everyone but the right man, going nearly insane with jealousy in the process... All this is expertly managed by Lurie, but it is in her resolution of her characters that she shows her full powers... perceptive and intelligent' - Julian Mitchell, Sunday Times

Lurie is and really is, different. She writes with great elegance, as frostily clear as the climate she describes; and with sharp intelligence piercing through every sentence. She is very funny as well -- Francis Hope * Observer *
